  • To make the gatta, mix together the chickpea flour, carom seeds, cumin seeds, red chili powder, turmeric powder, salt, and oil in a bowl.
  • Gradually add water to the mixture and knead it into a smooth dough. Divide the dough into small equal-sized balls.

  • Boil water in a large pot and add the cylindrical gatta to it. Let them cook for 10-12 minutes, or until they float to the surface. Remove them from the water and set aside.
  • Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add cumin seeds, mustard seeds, and asafoetida. Once they start to splutter, add the chopped fenugreek leaves and soaked green gram seeds. Mix well and cook for 5-6 minutes.
  • Add turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, red chili powder, and garam masala powder to the pan. Mix well and cook for another minute.
  • Add 2 cups of water to the pan and bring the mixture to a boil. Add the cooked gatta to the pan and stir gently.
  • Cover the pan and let the curry cook for 10-12 minutes on low heat. Add salt to taste and stir.
  • Finally, add lemon juice to the curry and mix well. Turn off the heat and let the curry rest for a few minutes before serving.
  • Your delicious Hara Dana Methi Bail Gatta Curry is ready to be served with hot roti or steamed rice. Enjoy
